NEW FOR 2020! Join us for the adventure of a life-time - a trek to the foothills of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Hike to basecamp, following in the footsteps of some of the most famous and respected mountaineers of all time and experience the spirit of the fascinating Sherpa people, all while being surrounded by the most breath-taking landscape imaginable. There’s also time to trek to the summit of Kalapatar and marvel at the magnificent views of Mount Everest at sunrise. It’s an incredible sixteen-day adventure, which will only keep you out of the office for nine days!
The secret to achieving our goal of reaching Everest Base Camp is to acclimatise well. We will be walking at a steady pace, ascending to altitude slowly. It’s important to rest, eat good food, sleep well and drink plenty of water. This trek will certainly challenge you but there’s nothing like the overwhelming sense of achievement you’ll feel when you reach Everest Base Camp – a moment you will remember for a lifetime.

This trek is exclusive to Julia’s House fundraisers and offers a great opportunity to come together with other supporters of Julia’s House to explore this inspiring mountain range, whilst raising much needed funds for our families.
If you would like to take part and support Julia’s House, there are three ways you can get involved:
1. Sponsorship funded: Pay a deposit of £499 and pledge to raise £3,700*.
2. Flexi: Pay a deposit of £499 + £800 towards the cost of the trip (due by 21st February 2020). Pledge to raise £2,900*
3. Self-fund: Pay a deposit of £499 to secure your booking and then pay the balance of £1,951 by 21st February 2020. We would love you to try and raise a minimum of £1,500.
The deposit can be paid in two instalments of £249.50.
The registration fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable. We recommend that you organise travel insurance at the time of booking as this will protect your non-refundable registration fee in the event of unexpected cancellation.
Join us at our Dorset Hospice for a free information evening to find out more about what the trek involves, how the money you raise will make a difference to local children and their families and meet some of the team before you make the decision to sign up for the challenge.
